For the past 25 years UK higher education institutions have forged research and teaching partnerships with their counterparts overseas. Many of these links were funded by the British government and managed by the British Council's Higher Education Links Scheme. This book takes an informed and critical look at issues and trends in global higher education over the past 25 years with an in-depth and often personal account of how these links were managed and led. Ten experts representing a variety of disciplines from areas such as conserving the natural environment, the promotion of human rights, and education and gender present an 'insider's' view of their link, reflecting upon the successes and challenges in promoting research, developing institutional capacity at home and abroad, and the lessons they have learned. This book will be of particular interest to those working in higher education and international development generally; as well as students, researchers and professionals engaged in bilateral and multilateral development assistance programmes.
